Visual Studio IDE

Announcement: Last fall, we migrated this forum to Visual Studio Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. As the final step in the migration, this forum will be closed off completely on June 1st, 2019. We encourage you to visit Visual Studio Developer Community where you can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas, and engage with Visual Studio teams.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of Visual Studio, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The Visual Studio Team

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  3. Improve the documentation for Visual Studio code signing workflow

    Improve the documentation for Visual Studio code signing workflow.

    When making the build and preparing package for store deployment (e.g. UWP for corporate deployment and HoloLens/MR) and using strong certificate the original PFX certificate gets converted to output folder .CER file giving the impression that the new .CER file must be shipped with the executables.

    This mistake will destroy the whole purpose of code signing.

    Documentation about this is very lacking and no explanation is given about this beyond one reference ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/jj835832(v=vs.85).aspx ) where it is explicitly told that thsi must be deleted as soon as possible.

  7. Run and test hash of projects before asking about reload

    I often use rebase in git. If I have csproj changes, and do a git rebase, VS2017 detects that a project file has changed after my rebase (I presume modified date or other metadata) and prompts me on whether to reload, often when no real change has occurred.

    I would prefer if VS could detect that it wasnt a real change to my project files. git rebase does an "undo" of my changes, and then syncs me with upstream, and then does a "redo" of my changes; so after the whole rebase, my csproj is back to what it was,…

  8. Support Creation of VS Templates for Solutions that Include (Reference) Existing Projects

    The previous post for this suggestion has apparently been closed to feedback, but this suggestion would be very helpful for developers using a "common" library project that is still in development while developing multiple other applications that use that "common" library.

    Currently, the only way to create a solution template requires a fairly manual process (as outlined in the MSDN documentation: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms185308.aspx) and results in copies of each project.

    The desired result, for example, is to have a template that contains a UI project template and then a "link" to an existing project. When the solution template is used,…

  11. Enhance multitargeting support through UI

    Please make the multitargeting work in the UI. Currently, you have to edit the .csproj manually to make a .net standard and .net4.6 multitargeting configuration.

  13. Add support for QT and GTK, KDE Controls

    I use many languages, and many operating systems, if you add support for QT and GTK controls among others, .net would be used on many more machines and since 4 of the languages I already use are in Visual Studio it would help me and others to not have to use 10 different IDE's, just a thought

  19. Ensure VS copies dependent assemblies during build

    This was originally posted by Andy as https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio-ide/suggestions/4306075-ensure-vs-copies-dependant-assemblies-during-build, and closed with "we are closing older ones that don’t have enough votes so newer ones from you can move to the top. If this suggestion is still important to you, feel free to open it again."

    The suggestion to implement this missing feature is still important to me so I am opening it again. VS desperately needs a better solution -- any solution -- for handling native/external dll dependency chains in .NET projects.

    Andy's description of the issue (abridged):

  20. Create an intellisense publishment tool for VS2017

    Now in the current latest version of VS2017, we have to following this to manually add multiple platforms in csproj/vbproj....,ect for publishment (See : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/deploying/deploy-with-vs.

    I think this can be totally done through the publish UI, Microsoft can offer different kinds of versions of platforms according to the compatibility of Core or Standard Library versions.

    This means when you choose a specific Core or Standard Library, and when we right click the project and choose "Publish", we can choose multiple platforms by checking in checkboxes.
